Homeopathy has always cured so many cases of migraine I have my personal experience in curing migraine so nicely with homeopathy.

In Allopathic medicine there is no remedy for this disease. So it is common to find patients coming for homeopathy treatment after suffering for 10 to 15 years, despite allopathic treatment.
